Working life in the UK
At Arup we are dedicated to sustainable development: we do socially useful work that has meaning, improves lives and shapes a better world. Our extraordinary collective provides expertise across all areas of the built environment from strategic approach and planning to design and engineering.
We are owned in trust by our members, a structure that allows us freedom to set our own direction and opportunities – independently. We choose work that aligns with our values, working with clients on ambitious projects that will set new standards.
We don’t believe in the idea of ‘no, it can’t be done’. If there’s a way to do it, we’ll find it. If there isn’t a way, we’ll invent it. This attitude has made us not only market leaders but thought leaders in sustainable development.

Digital engineering is unlocking new unseen opportunities and leading to a more sustainable future, and I am proud that Arup is at the centre of this movement
Work like this gives us the credentials to say that we can do things in a different way, and I think this is very powerful.
It feels like I belong to an organisation that wants to make a difference. ‘Shaping a better world’ to an outsider could appear cliched, we all do try and live by it.
